Parsonage Fundraiser Update: July 27, 2018 https://www.maryestherumc.org/2018/parsonage-fundraiser-update-july-27-2018/ Fri, 27 Jul 2018 15:58:57 +0000 https://www.maryestherumc.org/?p=5262 Read More]]> Thank you to everyone that has been able to help!

We have collected $7,240, but still need $9,500.

This Sunday is the last day for the fundraiser. Help us meet our goal.
(This is a special fundraiser above your regular church giving.)

We have incurred various expenses, as we prepare to sell the parsonage (roofing, painting, and flooring), which were not included in the 2018 Annual Budget.

And we need your HELP in covering the $16,700 cost for the work.

When making a donation for this special fundraiser make sure to clearly mark it for Parsonage.

If you have any questions about the work being completed or financing, please contact Carl Williams (Trustees Chair) or Jim Busby III (Finance Chair).
